Who finds the political correctness of today’s society just a little bit over the top? We have done away with some old fashioned favourites just so we can have an extremely sterile like society. For example Sesame Street’s the Cookie Monster is no longer – he’s now been renamed “The Sometimes Cookie Monster,” which doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. The fat controller from Thomas the Tank Engine is gone. Apparently there was something sinister about Noddy because he used to jump into the same bed as Mr Big Ears. Humphrey B Bear didn’t wear any pants, so he had to go – what bear wears pants anyway? What’s next are they going to rename Sesame Street’s Big Bird “The Extremely Vertically Gifted Bird.” Let’s not
forget Bananas and Pyjamas, they’ve managed to fly under the radar for sometime now, jumping into bed with the Teddies all the time. I wonder how long it will be before they too are axed. I think in a way this is patching the way for future generations of overly sensitised people. Not everyone will agree but there was a story a mum
Wrote on here not so long ago about loving her children enough for them
Not to be the centre of her world and it got me thinking about some of the things she wrote and how in some ways we are contributing to an over sensitised generation. I want my son to be able to handle
The hurdles in life.
